If you’re Voyage-Air Guitars, it can…

When these guitars first came out, I was a little dubious about them. Sure, they offered a travel convenience with the folding neck, but at around $500 at the time, I kind of felt that what I’d be paying for was a premium for the hinging technology attached to a cheap guitar; no matter the repute of the luthier behind the guitar nor the artist endorsements that the manufacturer may have (which I’ve found are often dubious in many cases).

But Voyage-Air Guitars has been around for awhile now, and they have a much wider selection of guitars, including a Premium Series line which are actually quite nice. In particular, their VAOM-2C is a guitar that has caught my eye. This is their top-of-the-line model with a cutaway, and it seems to have everything I like in an acoustic guitar: East Indian Rosewood back and sides, Sitka spruce top, and solid mahogany “C” profile neck; plus a bright, rich, full tone from what I could gather from clips and videos.

Premier Guitar was very impressed with this guitar, giving it a 5.0 rating, which is a VERY rare designation.

Here’s their video review of the VAOM-C1, which was the preceeding model to the 2C:

By the way, I DIG that carrying case that not only has room for the guitar, it also has amp storage space to carry a mic, cables, and even a laptop!

There’s a VAOM-C1 over at Gryphon Stringed Instruments. I’m definitely going to check it out!
